Today I'm here with another fun installment of Mail Art Monday!!!
Here in Ohio the air is getting crisper, leaves are falling and I'm loving my spiced tea and coffees... Fall is such a fun time!
So today's tutorial is a fun Halloween themed envelope and postcard.
(Stamp links at the bottom of this post)
And speaking of fall themed postcards don't forget to stop by the Viva Las VegaStamp! Groupies on Facebook to join our swap!!! I know I was so excited for this swap! I'm mailing my 4 out this week (don't worry they are still taking sign ups and they aren't due to be sent for quite a while).
To Create these ATC's I started with some Scraps of painted art journal paper given to me by my mom (Her blog is HERE). They were created with Dylusions paints and various stencils. I cut 3 pieces to 2x3in for stamping on and 3 pieces to 2.25 x 3.25 in to matte on. the final layer is black card stock in standard 2.5 x 3.5 in. I stamped my images on the top layer of each and set them aside to dry (ink on paint can some times be temperamental... although this paint plays well with stamps)
While the tops dried I glued the bottom and middle layers together.
Next I glued the stamped images to their bases and used a fine tip black pen to draw on some faux stitching.... (I love that it pulls the layers together).
Lastly I added a few hints of color to small parts of each card to help different features stand out a little more :D Detailed photos below
I hope these inspire you to create some fun pieces too!! I Just love how these came out!!! :D
